ALICE: Focus on People with Disabilities
This ALICE report focuses on people with disabilities. It shows nearly 40,000 people with disabilities in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties — 49% of all people with disabilities — lived in a household with income below the ALICE Threshold of Financial Survival in 2019.
- Almost half (49%) of people with disabilities in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties lived in households experiencing financial hardship in 2019. While 16% were below the FPL, an additional 33% — more than twice as many — were ALICE.
- While there are people below the ALICE Threshold across all education levels, 70% of people with disabilities with a high school education or lower lived in households with income below the ALICE Threshold in 2019, compared to 48% of people with disabilities with at least a high school diploma.
- Having a job does not guarantee financial stability, but 35% of people with disabilities in the labor force were below the ALICE Threshold in 2019, compared to 61% of people with disabilities not working.
